A Miraculous Lambing Event

Six live lambs to one ewe

 

Velcourt’s farm in Abbotsbury, Dorset this week saw a ewe give birth to an astonishing 6 live lambs. Farm Manager Mark Ward explained how the ewe was scanned to reveal 4 lambs but she actually had 6. He added that it is a record to have this many alive and that the shepherd who has been with them for nearly 50 years has never seen this before. Mother and her lambs are all doing well.
